Delta 50-760 Dust Collector Conversion (in detail)

08-18-2014 08:48 PM by JerryinCreek | 6 comments »

REASONS FOR MAKING THE CONVERSION: I have a very small shop and I couldn’t move the dust collection system (dcs) where it would be out of the way. The cloth bag filter sat so high that it would hit duct work in my shop. I also didn’t like emptying the plastic debris bag. It was difficult to remove and once removed debris from up in the cloth bag would fall to the floor. I searched out all of the information I could find on making dcs conversions. One conversion that intrigue...

Delta 50-760 with Cyclone Retrofit.

04-29-2012 11:46 PM by TechRedneck | 21 comments »

I have declared war on dust in the shop. My shop is in the basement/garage and I have been spending more and more time there. Recently I was planing/jointing around 100’ of rough cut cherry for a project which produced a lot of sawdust from all the power tools used. As a hybrid woodworker, I like to get my wood from the mill and prep it myself, saving money. Once I get the stock flat and square and within 1/8” or less then I switch to hand tools. I purchased a Delta 50-76...

Staggered Steps Endgrain Cutting Board

06-27-2010 03:56 AM by SPalm | 43 comments »

This is a new style of cutting board (at least new to me). I was thinking about 3D designs on the way home from work last week, after Martyn’s Blog and Steve’s Video. So I came up with this. Kind of Sinister, kind of Tumbling block. Once I drew it out, it reminded me of Staggered Stairs (which are kind of cool), and reminded Karen of the Steps on the Row Houses in Baltimore. So that is how the name came about. I started with 6/4 walnut cut into 10 inch strips. This small length makes ...

my first falling blocks #1: my first tumbling blocks

01-18-2012 12:14 AM by Philzoel | 6 comments »

Started this project in early Jan when i saw them by degoose. Made this drawing immediately to see if I could figure the angles. 60 degrees () to make 6 sided figure was the clue. 360/6 = 60. Took me awhile and drawing the box in bottom right of this drawing. Next hurdle was how much wood of each type (color)? In The drawing top middle, shows board 1.6” thick. Cut on 60 with all sides equal to hypotenuse. in this cause sine 60 = 1.6/x or x= 1.85”. all sides need...

Cutlist and Layout from Sketchup

07-03-2008 02:37 PM by daltxguy | 318 comments »

If you’re a fan of Sketchup for creating woodworking models, then the next obvious step is to use Sketchup to help you create cutlists and layouts. Sketchup plugin Cutlist 4.1 does just that. CutList 4.1 sketchup plugin helps you determine how much of each material you need to produce your design, taking into account nominal sized lumber with allowances for finishing to final size. Then it goes one further and lays out all of the pieces on boards or sheet good sizes of your choosing. Th...
